The Grenat jewel of Perpignan
The traditional Grenat jewellery of Perpignan is the most prestigious production of the art craft industry of the Pyrénées-Orientales province. The jewellers' know-how has maintained a prestigious cultural legacy; the one of jewellery techniques of 17th and 18th centuries which have disappeared across over Europe. This method of stamp and box set allows the creation of ranges of catalan jewels which are constantly renewed according to the trends.
Today, the Grenat jewels of Perpignan are part of the luxury and fashion sector, contributing to the fame of the quality of the know-how of the Roussillon, a mix of the catalan roots and french luxury in search of excellence.
The Institut du Grenat (1901 law) is currently dedicating itself to the preservation of the traditional making as a cultural legacy so that this jewel becomes again a symbol of modernity, while conveying the values of a noble tradition.
